Cassey Ho’s Career

Cassey Ho was born in January 1987 in Los Angeles. Ho grew up in the San Francisco Bay area and lived in Cali most of her life. People Magazine reported that the star fitness model was oftentimes picked on because of being chubby when she was a child.

The negative comments of other kids didn’t get Ho down though. She used the negativity from others to become more aware of her body. At the age of 16 Ho say an infomercial about a pilates DVD and she asked her parents to buy it for her. They did and she fell in love with the exercise, which led to her pilates business venture.

She didn’t always want to be a fitness guru though. Cassey had always dreamt of being a fashion designer. Her parents didn’t support her career as a fashion designer though so Ho went to Whittier College to follow a path that would please her parents. In 2009, she graduated from the college with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology (on track to become a doctor).

Prior to her graduation Cassey released her first pilates Youtube video (by accident).  Now she’s able to make a living with her pilates videos and health blog.

Like many people, you’re probably wondering how much a vlogger can make. Well, what is the successful vlogger Cassey Ho’s net worth?

Cassey Ho’s Net Worth

Cassey Ho's net worthIt has only been six years since she released her first pilates video on Youtube but Cassey Ho’s net worth has already risen to $2 million. Youtube has recognized her as being the number one female fitness channel on the video streaming site and has obtained over 3 million subscribers.

As mentioned above, Cassey accidentally stumbled upon this opportunity. When she uploaded her first video in 2009 it was only intended for her small class of 40 people. It was a goodbye video to the class because she was moving across the country. It was posted to Youtube without being made private and began accumulating views. The majority of her $2 million net worth was built from advertising on this Youtube channel and products she sells.

Her brand, POP Pilates, is a live class as well as an internationally recognized instructor certification program. She is able to cash in on both of those things throughout the year. Her POP Pilates format has also been made the official pilates format at all 24 Hour Fitness locations in the United States.

Cassey released her activewear clothing line “Bodypop” in 2014 which can be purchased on her website. Additionally, Ho has also published a novel (“Hot Body Year Round”) and continues to look for ways to grow her business.

Just last year Ho launched one of her toughest workout programs yet and has begun planning for a new program in 2017. Each workout takes about 28 minutes and is completely equipment-free.

Ho is known as one of the most successful vloggers in the U.S. with an annual salary sitting at $450,000 a year. She hasn’t detailed any huge business plans for the new year but there’s no sign of the online fitness fanatic slowing down any time soon.

The Different Types of Charts in Forex Trading

analysis-1841158_640In forex trading, reading multiple charts are the key that unlocks current prices, history and trends. It is this up-to-date data that traders use to place orders and to put limits on their positions. They are the backbone, if you will, of technical analysis leading to the best possible FX trades. They accurately portray price action to all traders everywhere on the globe simultaneously. Through forex charts, everyone is on the same playing field with the same data to analyze. For anyone trading on price action or technical information, charts can be considered as Step 1. By feeding in the necessary criteria, charts are a simplistic way of viewing a graphical display of how prices have behaved for a certain period of time. With this clear picture, traders can find a suitable position to enter the market.

Forex Line Charts

The most basic type of FX chart is the line chart. This chart consists of a series of dots that are connected to one another with a line. The lines begin on one closing price and connect to the next closing price. When these charts are strung together, it’s possible to see how a currency pair moves over the course of a given time period. While there are more advanced ways to use line charts in evaluating price action, most traders do not use line charts due to their simplicity.

Forex Bar Charts

Compared to line charts, bar charts are more complex and can supply a more intricate picture. They not only show the prices for opening and closing, but also the highs and the lows. When viewing the lower end of the vertical bar, you can see what the lowest price that currency pair was traded for during a specific time period. The top section of the bar is where you can see the highest price that was paid. While looking at the vertical bar, you can determine the general range of the currency pair’s trading history. Bar charts are also referred to as “OHLC” charts, because they provide the Open, High, Low and Close for that currency during that time period.

Forex Candlestick Charts

Tokyo rice traders in the 1700s began plotting prices on pieces of paper, so they could get an overview of profits during a fixed period of time. From these plots, they found patterns that lead to a higher profitability. This is an early example of candlestick charting. They show the same information regarding pricing as the bar chart, but in a more graphic format that is easier to see, making them ideal for beginning traders. Using a vertical line, candlestick charts indicate the range from high to low. However, the body of the block, or the larger area in the middle, shows the range that is in between the opening prices and the closing prices. Usually if that middle block is colored in, the currency pair closed at a lower rate than when it opened. Candlestick charts can be a valuable piece of any price action strategy.

3 Unexpected Pregnancy and Post-Partum Costs

Source: Free Digital Photos

On December 16th I gave birth to an incredibly sweet baby boy. I’ll spare you of the birth details but will say that things did not go according to plan and we ended up in a hairy situation. Thankfully both he and I were in the presence of some of the leading obstetrics staff in the country and in fantastic hands!

This was my second pregnancy and felt that my husband and I were much, much more prepared this time. When I found out I was pregnant with my daughter, quite honesty I had no idea how we were going to do it financially and very much winged it. Thankfully it was after having her we had our own personal finance epiphany and got out s*it together and this blog was born.

Even though we were much more prepared this time, costs still came up that we weren’t prepared for. Some of them were simple pregnancy-brain oversights and some were costs we hadn’t factored in or seriously underestimated.

Parking

My obstetrician actually worked out of the main women’s and children’s hospital in town (rather than a private clinic as most do and then have delivery rights at the hospital). Hospital in an urban core means cost to park. By my third trimester I was having weekly appointments and paying for parking every visit. I’d try for the street meters which were cheaper but occasionally had to pay for parkade parking too. Then the cost of parking when I was admitted to the hospital for what ended up being three days. I didn’t track it but I’d say in my nine months’ worth of appointments, we paid close to $100 in parking just for visits. Something we didn’t budget for.

Post-Partum

Like I mentioned, our birth didn’t go as planned and we ended up in an emergency caesarean. Having already had a c/section (albeit a planned one) I kind of knew what to expect. However because we weren’t planning on having a repeat c/section, we didn’t have some things on hand which we ended up needing. With my first section, I did not have a waist binder to wear after surgery and at home and I knew if I ever had another I would need one. I tracked a post-partum binder down and had my sister-in-law bring it to be in the hospital. There were a few items like this that we didn’t plan for (even though in hindsight we should have planned for a worst-case birth, but I was trying to be optimistic). We had to make room in our budget for these items.

Breastfeeding

One of the best things about breastfeeding is that there are little to no costs involved with it. I’m thankful that again, I’ve been successful with breastfeeding this little guy and plan to exclusively breastfeed 12 months minimum if all goes well. One thing I didn’t budget for, deliberately, was special nursing clothes.  I didn’t have anything in my wardrobe but figured I’d make whatever clothes I had, work. Well my overly optimistic plan sucked because quite honestly I don’t have much in terms of clothes, period, let alone clothes that allow for breastfeeding. We went to the store a few days after he was born and I realized if I needed to feed him while there I’d basically have to remove the shirt I was wearing entirely. Especially in the winter, when I can’t exactly get away with wearing something like a cheap tank-top to nurse in, I needed a few easy access shirts for both my sanity and for ease when we leave the house (which, with two kids at home in the winter is necessary). I looked second hand with no luck and eventually paid full-price for a few shirts that work. I did find a sale online and was happy with the final price but it was still another $100 I didn’t plan to spend.

I’m thankful that in total I had very few pregnancy and post-partum costs at all (thank you universal healthcare) but still had a huge budget adjustment with me being off work for 12 months and collecting employment insurance. Even though these were unexpected costs I’m glad we were in a position to make them work without compromising anything else in our life because four years ago it would have been a hard pill to swallow.

What unexpected costs did you have with pregnancy?

Do Insurance Companies Employ Spies?

nature-1249462_640If you’re involved in an auto accident and file a claim, you expect that your insurance agent will approve the claim and reward you your financial compensation. After all, you pay your premium every month, never a late notice!

However, it takes a little more than paying your premium to actually have your claim approved after an accident.

 

Online Fingerprint

Let’s say that you’ve recently moved to a new city, but your insurance company still thinks you live at your parents’ address. It’s cheaper to be insured at your previous address than your new one, so you decide to keep everything in the documents as is. What the insurance company doesn’t know won’t hurt anyone, right? Wrong, it will hurt you.

If it’s learned that you’re living at a new address with a different zip code, your insurance company has grounds to terminate your contract. How would they have found out you live at a different address from the one listed in your paperwork? As it would happen, it’s not that hard to figure out. Do you have a Facebook or LinkedIn profile? Does it list where you work? Are the last several check-ins you shared in your new neighborhood? If the accident occurred far away from your original address, in an area you would ordinarily have been unlikely to drive, all your insurance agent has to do is look you up online. If there is enough evidence to prove that you do not live at the address on file with the insurance company, they will deny your claim and likely cancel the remainder of your contract.

In-Person Interview

After you have called your insurance agent to inform them of the accident and to file a claim, an insurance adjustor will be sent to inspect the results of the accident. You will be asked questions about the events leading up to the accident. The adjustor is trained to look for inconsistencies in your recollection and will purposely ask questions to try and trip you up. If you have not lied about the circumstances of the accident, there is nothing to worry about. If you have done a bit of fudging, the adjustor will root it out; it’s what they’ve been trained to do. If it’s determined that you have lied anyway, your claim will be denied and your contract likely terminated.

And always remember that after an accident, especially one in which you’re found at fault, the insurance company can raise your car insurance rates. If you don’t like the way you’re treated by insurance company, you can (and should) look to take your business elsewhere.

Under Surveillance

If the car accident resulted in an injury and you filed a claim under your personal injury protection (PIP) plan, insurance companies have been known to check-in with you to see if you really are hurt. According to Joe Horrrox Law, “Most of the time, a [claimant] does not know that [they] are being followed or videoed. Investigators accomplish this in different ways. Most of the time, they use two vehicles. One would go straight when the person turns and the other would then pick up. Investigators almost never follow right behind a person…[Furthermore], investigators can basically do video surveillance just about anywhere in the general public, such as parks, gyms, restaurants, church, etc., except for in the person’s home or place of business.”

Not all insurance companies do this, but some do. If they can find any shred of evidence that you misled them about the extent of your injuries, they will seek it out.

If you’re shopping for car insurance now, look at the company’s client satisfaction reviews, if people aren’t happy, it’s not a company to sign a contract with.
